If you’ve ever been to a developing country, you know how much the experience changes you. I traveled to Haiti during college for mission work and it affected me so deeply that I still carry it with me every day and it is a huge part of why I opened my Etsy shop and started writing this blog. I will go in to detail about that some other time, but here is a photo of me with some of the kids in Haiti. Check out the Mortel Foundation if you want to learn about one of my favorite organizations!
